Week 9 – The Meeting

Have you ever had an ex who hurt you so much that you have already planned in your head what you would say to him/her on that fateful day in the future when your paths should ever cross again?

You imagine how good it would feel to make that person realize how wonderful your life is without him/her, how he/she seems to regret leaving you – and how you don’t care about them at all.

They say that living well is the best revenge. How sweet it must taste.

The Meeting
© Music and Lyrics by Marcel Lee Pereira, 2 July 2010

Take back your smile, you don’t mean it
I’m not its captive, and I won’t let you
Captivate me today, no

You see, it’s a different me you’re seeing
In fact it’s because of you, but who’s complaining
And how are you, by the way?

Chorus
As you can see, I’ve never been better
That’s more than
Settled the score and
I’ve moved on, moved on
I’ve moved on, moved on

So you still look at my Facebook page
I’m not surprised, I’ve got tons of pictures
And yes, I’m in great shape too

You’re telling me that you miss me
You just need someone to walk all over, don’t you
I know you too well by now

Chorus
As you can see, I’ve never been better
That’s more than
Settled the score and
I’ve moved on, moved on
I’ve moved on, moved on

Take back all your wishes, they are not mine
And all our history too
Our paths they never were aligned
But this meeting’s long overdue
Now I’ve got a life to go back to

Chorus
As you can see, I’ve never been better
That’s more than
Settled the score and
I’ve moved on, moved on
I’ve moved on, moved on
I’ve moved on, moved on
I’ve moved on, moved on

P.S. In answer to the inevitable question: “Who’s this song about, huh?”, my disclaimer is: No one in particular! This is just me putting myself in that situation, imagining how it would feel, and writing a song about it. Simple as that 😉
